In the event of a large-scale disaster, such as an earthquake centered below Tokyo, The Tokyo Rinkai Disaster Prevention Park acts as a central base of operations for disaster prevention in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area that houses emergency response facilities including local disaster management headquarters, as well as institutions that compile disaster-related information and coordinate emergency disaster measures. The park is also a disaster prevention facility that acts as a core base camp for regional assistance units and a base of support for disaster medical care that functions in an integrated manner with the Higashi Ogishima region (Kawasaki City) distribution control center.

With respect to park operations, the City of Tokyo divides responsibilities with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism through the Urban Park Program taking into account activities during standard hours as well as times of disaster. (1) During standard operating hours, relevant organizations collaborate and perform exchanges of disaster-related information as well as a variety of simulations, training, and other activities in order to prepare for future disasters.

(3) The park is also is an attractive area that takes advantage of urban concentration and ability to attract visitors to the Tokyo waterfront subcenter. The national government park covers a land area of 6.7 ha and the adjacent municipal park covers 6.5 ha, providing for a total of 13.2 ha.
